Weekend Scenes

Saturday I’ve done completely nothing! I wasn’t lazy though but I just spend the day reading the Book Thief, working on a new sketch of a bearded man and just enjoying a day of rest. Most of the weekends are filled with all kinds of fun stuff and I really enjoy those things but sometimes when the weekend is over, I have the feeling that time totally passed me by. Staying inside this saturday has been a good choice and it felt refreshing, like my battery is recharged.


Yesterday Rene and I went to Amsterdam to visit the Neighbour Food Market (remember this post from last month?). The theme was Le Jardin, which means the garden in French. The market was held at an other location at the Westergasfabriek as the last time. Besides food there were a lot of stands that sold products for the garden; from books to plants to seeds. We didn’t like the location as much as the other one, it was quite small and there were too many people so I didn’t get a chance to take some nice photo’s like last time. We do enjoyed a nice piece of lemon cheesecake and after that a slice of a Portugese vegan quiche.



After we had some food we went to the Espressofabriek (Gosschalklaan 7) for a cup of coffee. Their cups are so lovely!

Can’t believe it has been such a long time since I ate ice cream.. especially since I’m quite of an addict. I even ate strawberry ice cream for breakfast last summer.


How did you spend your weekend?
